So, while on our trip up to Colorado Springs, my husband and I had a lot of time to talk while driving the 1,800 miles (including there and back again). Some of the time we talked about books, authors, series, those types of things, sort of like when our children were small and we would play “What am I?” types of games.
Let me say, before I pose the following question we talked about, that I am utterly spoiled by my Kindle. Taking all sorts of mysteries, a whole lot of authors, and even games in one tiny, little “book” is incredible. But, my husband posed this question to me:
You’re on a deserted island, you don’t have a Kindle (or Nook, ETC), you have only two authors’ books, who would those two authors be?
Of course, my first question was: Is each of the authors a single-name author, or can I lump all of that authors’ pseudonyms and series into that authors’ books? So, here is the revision of this question:
You’re on a deserted island, you don’t have a Kindle, Nook, or any other library-type of reader, you have only two authors (each author is allowed all of his/her pseudonyms and/or series), who would those two authors be?
***** ***** *****
I went through all of the authors who you all said you would want to take with you to a deserted island. Here is the list:
Amanda Ashley (aka Madeline Baker)
Donald Bain (aka Jessica Fletcher)
M.C. Beaton (aka Marion Chesney)
Doris Miles Disney
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Peggy L. Henderson
Reginald Hill (aka Patrick Ruell)
Joyce and Jim Lavene (aka J. J. Cook & Ellie Grant
Barbara Mertz (aka Barbara Michaels & Elizabeth Peters)
Nora Roberts (aka J.D. Robb)
Dell Shannon (aka Lesley Egan & Elizabeth Linington)
I hope I didn’t miss anyone!
